Frank Zappa – Very Distraughtening lyrics

[includes a fragment of Ronnie Sings? And a quote from Merry-Go-Round (Fischer)]

Ronnie Williams: Ba-bah-bahdily
Spider: Oh!
John: That one again.
Spider: It's a little pig. .. With wings
Pig With Wings: ee. ..
Gross Man: I hear you've been having trouble with pigs and ponies!

Left channel:
Calvin: To. .. Just the opposite. .. Going around to the other direction

Right channel:
Calvin: How 'bout us, don't we get any?
Gail: We don't get any. ..
Calvin: That's very distraughtening
Gail: We don't get any because we're otherwise

Spider: Everything in the universe is. .. Is. .. Is made of one element, which is a note, a single note. Atoms are really vibrations, you know, which are extensions of the big note, everything's one note. Everything, even the ponies. The note, however, is the ultimate power, but see, the pigs don't know that, the ponies don't know that.
Monica: You mean just we know that?
Spider: Right!

Spider: "Merry Go Round! Merry Go Round! Do-Do-Do-Do Do-Do-Do Do-Do-Do!" and they called that "doing their thing."
John: Oh yeah, that's what doing your thing is!
Spider: The thing is to put a motor in yourself.
